The program is both educational and experiential, incorporating multiple forms of meditation and mindful movement. MBSR was developed at the University of Massachusetts by Dr. Jon Kabat-Zinn and has since been studied and found to be an effective intervention for many people, including those with cancer. The program runs once per week for 8 weeks, 2.5 hours per session.
There is a 30 minute orientation session at the beginning of the first session and a half-day retreat part way through the program. We ask that you commit to the full length of the course to gain the full benefit.
